While I am doing eye exercises, should I wear my contact lenses or remove them before doing?
I am a 24 year old girl and my power is -4.75.I am wearing contact lenses now. I am really keen on reducing my power, please suggest some websites which explains more about what eye exercises are best for me.
Eye exercises, where you look at the tip of an object and move it in and out and left and right and up and down and over and over….don’t do ANYTHING to help, or hinder your refractive power of your eye. No matter how many situps you do, your stomach (the organ) isn’t going to digest food any faster, or slower. It just does it the way it’s supposed to…
Your eyes are already so strong, as far as bending light, that you are already focused at 1/4 – of a meter in front of you.
A -1.00 is focused at a meter
a -2.00 is focused at half a meter
a -3.00 is focused at a third of a meter
a -4.00, a fourth of a meter
-5.00, fifth of a meter.
So exercises if they were to work to make the muscles stronger would make it so your lens system got ever MORE powerful and you’d focus even CLOSER to your face and you’d need even a stronger minus lens to weaken that lens system to ‘normal’.
At 24 though, assuming you’ve no other ocular pathology, and your myopia is ‘stable’, the corneal implant surgery would be a good way to go. It places a very thin lens within the substance of the cornea which flattens the cornea some, enough to make it so your focal distance is moved OUT to optical infinity.
The other ways are the LASIK or LASEK…and some people just get their ‘cataracts’ done and the implant placed is measured according to the axial length of the eye. This makes it so that the eye is focused at distance already. Some of the new lenses are bendable so some can actually see distance, then focus close and the lens will move and refocuse the eye to ‘close’.
If you talk to a refractive surgeon…the way to go is refractive surgery. If you talk to a general ophthalmologist, the corneal implant may be his recommendation (this seems preferable as this one doesn’t ‘remove’ any tissue or damage any tissues).
But the eye exercises is more for people with a neurological problem or a weak muscle to the eye problem. Or someone that has fixation difficulties. That’s not you.
Anyone have any Eye strengthening exercises for only one eye?
i have very poor vision in my right eye, but my left is fine. i need some exercises for one eye. i couldn’t find any on my own though…
P.S. im 14. too young to do something? or too old for change to happen?
Depending on your age, there might not be much you can do.
First you should see an ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam and get glasses or contacts if the doctor finds you need some correction- especially to your right eye. Having the rays of light from images you are viewing focused on your retina (the back part of our eye that turns the light signals into electrical signals) may improve your vision if you’ve needed that little bit of correction all along.
Patching is often prescribed in children to improve the vision in one eye (the patch goes over the better seeing eye, causing the patient to use the eye that doesn’t see as well). Patching is most effective at an earlier age (ie before age 8 years) though some recent studies have shown improvement in visual acuity with patching in teenagers.
*I just read your additional info*- I would say you’re not too old to try patching, no guarantees though. Set up an appointment with an ophthalmologist (or ask your parents to). The studies showed improvement in teenagers up to age 17 with patching. Good luck!
What is the most someone has restored their vision with eye exercises?
How much have your prescription been reduced, from what to what, how long did it take and can you see clearly all the time?
IÂ´ve known people that recovered their vision, but it takes like 4ever and you need to do these exercises on a daily basis and u need to do the exercises even after achieving a 20/20 vision (if u do) IÂ´d recommend u contacts or Lasik.
